carrying supplies to the international space station. this is video of an earlier spacex launch. nasa predicts a 90% chance of good weather for liftoff. new jersey governor chris christie has a new presidential cane website up and running just days before he officially jumps into the race christie is expected to announce his candidacy on tuesday in his hometown of livingston, essex county. it's also expected christie will visit new hampshire as part of his campaign rollout. christie was once seen as a leading contender for the republican nomination, but political observers say low polling numbers in new jersey are taking a toll on his national popularity. gop white house candidate ted cruz says in his new book that his father asked to fight alongside fidel castro. cruz said his dad was a cuban revolutionary in the 1950s. he said raphael cruz wanted to
join castro but instead traveled to texas and later renounced fidel castro when he took power. cruz said his father was only an early supporter of the eventual cuban dictator. governor christie has plenty of company in the race for the house. 13 republican candidates have announced they will run. four democrats are also running for president. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows hillary clinton leading her nearest competitor by 60 points. marriage equality is the law of the land. it is also the top issue on this morning's edition of "meet the press." joining us now for a preview is moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. good to see you. thanks being with us. >> ted, good morning to you. >> it was quite a week in washington. in an historic ruling the u.s. supreme court ruled same-sex marriage is a right guaranteed by the constitution. democrats support the decision. but what does it mean for the
republicans 2016 strategy? >> look, i think you the way they responded to this. the republican party nationally has been struggling with this issue for a while. they see the movement is toward embracing same-sex marriage. the majority of americans, nearly 60%. a majority of republican under the age of 40 support legalization of same-sex marriage. the party has been grappling with this. when you have a a group this large, you will see a mixture of reaction. it was clearly on the minds of ted cruz and mike huckabee. cruz called it the darkest 24 hours in american history. using harsh language to show how much they want to defy the court. then people like jeb bush and chris christie who criticized
the decision but essentially had the message of they september it, it's time to move on. both of those guys in many ways reflect the states they represent, new jersey and florida where this is more accepted. but also a reflection of their thinking about what they may look like in a general election. >> looking forward to discussion on that topic, chuck. also this weekend, more funerals in charleston and ever since the church massacre there, the debate over the confederate flag has moved at lightning speed. do you think that political change could become the new normal? >> i think it is going to become the new normal. this is the way millennials are shaking up the political system. if the people will lead the leaders will follow. when you see the reactions of politicians and how they're trying to catch up to the conversation on the confederate flag. this has been empowered by a
grassroots movement black lives matter that started after the death of trayvon martin this movement has altered the conversation on racial inequality. whether it's the bipartisan consensus that is growing on criminal justice reform issue ss to how the president talks about race. two years ago he had a different tone when he would speak about race issues. now he talks about it differently and in many ways i think it's a reaction to what is a growing powerful movement, probably best represented by this black lives matter movement. quite a change chuck todd. thank you very much. >> you got it. >> again, marriage equality will top today's edition of "meet the press." join chuck and his guests force the discussion, this morning at 10:30 on nbc 10.
